Good luck in the future

Dear Editor:

I want to thank my many supporters for their enthusiasm and support for my campaign. Though I was soundly defeated, I feel I won as the people who told me they had voted for me are people who do try to make a difference, think deeply about things and whom I admire and respect.

I also want to thank my four fellow candidates, Jack Hatfield, Bruce Anderson, George Newman and Dee Malone, who went the whole distance ” putting thought into your platforms, writing up brochures and flyers, going door to door to talk with people and putting in the effort to make this a democracy and not the anointing it was destined to be last May. Though county issues were eclipsed by the national election, we worked hard to learn about the concerns of the people in our community and it was a real pleasure seeing you out there and getting to know you better. So bravo!

I wish the new board wisdom and insight as the next few years will be tough on the people of this county and they will need your leadership.

Shellie Roy
